    The Housing Question under Capitalist Political Economies2014In: Housing, Theory and Society, ISSN 1403-6096, E-ISSN 1651-2278, Vol. 31, no 4, p. 422-428Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This short article is a reply to four commentaries that were written in response to our paper "Centering Housing in Political Economy". Rather than discussing each of the commentaries separately, we have chosen to distil and discuss four themes that appear important both to the commentators and to us: theory and abstraction; land rent; mortgage securitization; and the role of the state. Our discussion of theory advances the claim that theories and frameworks that take not only the economics of housing but also its politics, history, geography and institutions seriously can in principle be commensurate under the critical realist ontology suggested by two of our commentators. Our discussion of securitization adds to the existing literature on the theorization of the spatial fix and the circuits of capital. Finally, in reconsidering the housing question in political economy, we argue that you cannot today come to grips with the laws of the latter without factoring in on the centrality of the former.

    Residential Crowding in a "Distressed" and a "Gentrified" Neighbourhood - Towards an Understanding of Crowding in "Gentrified" Neighbourhoods2015In: Housing, Theory and Society, ISSN 1403-6096, E-ISSN 1651-2278, Vol. 32, no 4, p. 429-449Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research has often associated residential crowding with impoverished segments of the population, often living in distressed neighbourhoods, and detrimental consequences for crowded households. However, according to official housing standards, crowding is also common in some gentrified inner-city areas. This paper problematizes these findings in two ways: first, by discussing how the theoretical implications of traditional indicators, such as dwelling standards, can be traded off for perceptions of neighbourhood identity; and second, by comparing the socio-economic profiles of the residents in a distressed and a gentrified neighbourhood. The findings suggest that distressed crowding due to deficient economic and other resources is spatially segregated from gentrified crowding where the desire to live in attractive areas might outweigh living space considerations. These findings call for further research into people's experiences of crowding in relation to other qualities of the dwelling - in particular, the residential neighbourhood.

    Rights to Housing: Reviewing the Terrain and Exploring a Way Forward2014In: Housing, Theory and Society, ISSN 1403-6096, E-ISSN 1651-2278, Vol. 31, no 4, p. 447-463Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Exacerbated by the specificity of housing as a welfare good, debates on housing, citizenship and rights are complex and often confusing. This article attempts to clarify the debate on rights-based approaches in the field of housing, shelter and homelessness. It focuses on the philosophical distinction between “natural” and “socially constructed” rights, and suggests that a plausible “third way” may be found by using Martha Nussbaum’s “central human capabilities” approach as a foundation for universal human rights. “Citizenship” is proposed as a conceptual bridge between the philosophical discourse on rights and its practical application in specific political contexts. For this purpose, T.H. Marshall’s classic division between “civil” and “social” citizenship rights is translated into a distinction between “legal” and “programmatic” rights to housing. The article demonstrates that it is possible to object to the notion of natural and/or human rights in the housing field, and still be in favour of clearly delimited legal rights to housing for homeless people and others in acute need. Conversely, one may be in sympathy with the discourse of universal moral rights, but be sceptical about the allegedly “atomizing” implications of individually enforceable legal rights.

    Marginalization and Riots: A Rationalistic Explanation of Urban Unrest2020In: Housing, Theory and Society, ISSN 1403-6096, E-ISSN 1651-2278, Vol. 37, no 2, p. 162-179Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Urban riots are typically carried out by individuals who live in residential areas that are relatively marginalized socially, economically and politically. Previous research has discussed several aspects of deprivation that may help explain this relationship. Contributing further to this research, we aim to explain why marginalization produces riots by developing a rationalistic specification of social mechanisms. The utility of our model is demonstrated by a case study of the 2013 Stockholm riots. The model consists of (a) general local incentives that appeal to individual motives, but only lead to participation in riots when (b) the delicate local equilibrium is destabilized by an event that (c) makes riots appear justified, risk-free and thrilling. The advantage of this rationalistic model is that it shows why other people, in other places, would have reason to act in much the same way under similar circumstances.

    Sensuous governance: Assessing urban animal hoarding2014In: Housing, Theory and Society, ISSN 1403-6096, E-ISSN 1651-2278, Vol. 31, no 4, p. 464-479Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article addresses how professional animal welfare inspectors and police officers produce knowledge about animal hoarding, and how they detect disconcern and come to conclusions about how to act. The specific aim is to contribute to a sociological understanding of the phenomenon of urban animal hoarding assessment by deploying the framework of “sensuous governance”. I will do so by focusing on the ways in which authorities use and record their senses of the emplaced situation – their visual, olfactory and auditory impressions – in order to make a judgement. The more general contribution concerns how the dimension of species adds to the long-lasting sociological interest in sensing as a mode of knowing about our environment. Using interview data along with animal welfare protocols from a Swedish study of human/animal relations in the city, the intersection of species, spaces and senses is put in focus.

    Beyond Gemeinschaft and Gesellschaft: Cohousing Life in Contemporary Sweden2015In: Housing, Theory and Society, ISSN 1403-6096, E-ISSN 1651-2278, Vol. 32, no 2, p. 131-150Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The idea of cohousing is alive in many industrialized countries today. It is seen as an interesting alternative way of living in late modern cities, here a majority of people live in families, couples or single households, but since there is a general lack of knowledge of what it means to live in a cohousing unit there are also prejudices. In cohousing units, the members are bound up to each other not by family ties but as separate persons with different relations. The inhabitants are living in different households and flats and with common spaces. Architecture is important as well as the organization of cooperation and everyday life. This article presents results from a study on “cohousing for second half of life” in the capital city of Sweden. The main question is: What does it mean to live in a cohousing unit and who is living here? Through in-depth interviews, we found that the residents in this type of dwelling underscore the possibility of both autonomy and dependency, privacy and togetherness. Theoretically, the relations in a cohousing unit can neither be characterized as Gemeinschaft nor Gesellschaft but at the same time it could be both/and. This evokes a third social relationship of the Bund – a theoretical concept beyond the dichotomy of Gemeinschaft and Gesellschaft.

    Mechanisms of Solidarity in Collaborative Housing - The Case of Co-operative Housing in Denmark 1980-20172020In: Housing, Theory and Society, ISSN 1403-6096, E-ISSN 1651-2278, Vol. 37, no 1, p. 65-81Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we discuss the role of solidarity in collaborative housing in relation to the trajectory and discourse of the Danish idea of co-operative housing (andelstanken). Our analytical perspective draws on the concept of social mechanisms and a framework suggested by the social scientist Steinar Stjerno. We argue that collaborative housing based on individual (home) ownership of shares and user-rights to apartments are susceptible to the mechanism of "conflicting interests between different categories on the housing market". Moreover, we suggest that this mechanism has a tendency to further the economic interests of residents, at the expense of the external solidarity with groups looking to access affordable housing. Our argument is supported by theoretical reflection, the historical trajectory of co-operative housing in Scandinavia and empirical analysis of the Danish case.

    Shock Hunting: Effects of Regional-dependent, Regional-specific Shocks in the Swedish Property Market2016In: Housing, Theory and Society, ISSN 1403-6096, E-ISSN 1651-2278, Vol. 33, no 2, p. 178-194Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to evaluate housing price risks by examining the price diffusion process in different regions of Sweden. We model regional housing volatility as stemming from two sources: regional-specific shocks that reflect fundamental changes and regional-dependent shocks that reflect shocks in related regions. We evaluate the relative contributions of these two sources of regional price variations and measure shock persistence using multivariate modelling. Our results confirm the importance of price diffusion across regions and indicate that several influential regional prices are singled out as powerful determinants of regional heterogeneous volatility through direct and indirect influences.
